The next step for Kerbal kind is to land on the Mun.  We will prepare for our flight with another tutorial.

  2. To The Mun: Part 2
  3. Tips
    1. When you lower your orbit, be aware that the Mun has craters sticking thousands of meters up
    2. The whole target marker thing is BS.  To land, all you have to do is find a clear strip of land on the bright side of the Mun and burn retrograde
    3. After you have gotten rid of all your horizontal speed, make sure you don’t fall any faster than 50 m/s. Once you see your shadow, slow down to 10 m/s, and land at less than 5 m/s
